2019 Kitty Davis Award

2019 Kitty Davis Award recipient Jack Sakwa accompanied by his wife.

Jack Sakwa became a volunteer at Charles E. Smith Life Communities (CESLC) because of his firm commitment to helping older adults and his shared values with CESLC. Sakwa has spent over 1,000 hours on our campus enriching the lives of both residents and team members, always willing to help where needed. Whether transporting residents to events or most recently, volunteering in the Human Resources department, Sakwa is a dependable part of the team.

The Kitty Davis Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service honors volunteers who exemplify the spirit of giving back and inspiring others. Sakwa embodies our values through his long-standing commitment to our community.

Human Resources Director Paula Donnell notes that “Jack is excellent when interacting with job candidates as well as with CESLC team members.” Sakwa, along with many other volunteers, was honored at our annual volunteer appreciation luncheon. We are so grateful for all of the time and support we received from our volunteers in 2019, a total of over 33,000 hours. Todah rabah!
